SES and Nawras Sign Capacity Contract to Serve Rural Areas in Oman

Nawras, one of the largest wireless operators in Oman, has signed a capacity agreement on SES’s NSS-6 satellite.

The capacity will allow Nawras to provide services such as high quality GSM backhaul and broadband across the Sultanate, including rural areas.

NSS-6 is located at the 95 degrees East orbital position. The spacecraft’s high-performance Ku-band beam is specifically devised to support key telecom infrastructure, enterprise and broadband networks across several regions, including the Middle East.

Wolfgang Wemhoff, CTO at Nawras, said, “Satellite is an important component in our network, as it caters for voice and Internet services in hard to reach locations.”

Hussein Oteifa, General Manager Middle East at SES, added: “SES’s satellites allow reliable connectivity, even across challenging geographical terrains, and we are delighted to deliver these best-in-class satellite services locally”.”
